couch to 5k – 4/5 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Good morning, my couch-to-5k friends! How are you? I am typing this from my iPad as I sit in the middle-of-nowhere a.k.a. the rig. Where Internet is sucky or nonexistent. Sorry for any errors you see! I can’t figure out how to get out of the HTML editor. Most of us just finished up week […]

Good morning, Couch-to-5K’ers! How’s it going? Did you survive Week 1? Or maybe you are just finding us and getting ready to lace up your shoes for the first time? Week 1 went excellent for me. I was surprised, really. Yesterday, I set out on my Week 2, Day 1 workout. The runs increase to […]

You have probably heard that we are putting on a race in October– Run the ‘Hood Virtual 5K/10K & Kids’ Run. It’s for anyone, really, walkers/runners/woggers… any age, any ability. I’ve now finished 3 half-marathons and several smaller races, but I’ve never had a race where I am able to consistently run {slow jog?} for […]

I like to run.  Well, it’s more like wogging (walk+jogging) but whatevs.  I get the job (ie mileage) done. Prior to October 2009, I was vehemently OPPOSED to running.  I mean, it hurt, I sweated a lot, my breathing sucked, and did I mention that it hurt?  Why would I want to willingly and knowingly […]

We are continuing our celebration of  Sisterhood Running Month with our “How To” series! You can catch Part 1 of the series on running here! We all have certain things we swear by when it comes to running(and trying to run, in my case). A lot of it is just trial and error, finding what […]

If there’s on piece of advice I can offer someone who’s thinking about running, it’s find a program and stick to it like glue. No matter how physically fit you are or aren’t, if you’ve never run and you try to do too much to soon, you’ll just end up injured, frustrated, and you’ll likely […]

So, I’m training for this 5k. Again. I already completed one earlier this summer, but I wasn’t very satisfied with my time.  So I decided to sign up for another one. This weight loss/exercise thing is so hard (whine). Anyway, I’m training for a 5k on September 12th and I have found myself in a […]

I am reposting this from earlier in the year! I know there are a lot of you who are doing the Couch-to-5K program or who have previously done it, and we would love to hear from you!! If you are anything like me, then you try running for a few minutes, huff and puff, can’t […]

Straight off the treadmill and I just had to share the fact that I ran even though I wasn’t being chased. In the past I figured why run if I didn’t have to? Well times are a changing. Yesterday Melissa posted the couch to 5k program for our Fitness Fridays and it was just the […]
